Outlook Express by the instructions?
After you configure you must
Highlight 'pop.gmail.com' under 'Account,' and click 'Properties.'
Click the 'Advanced' tab.
Check the box next to 'This server requires a secure connection (SSL)' under 'Outgoing Mail (SMTP).'
Enter '465' in the 'Outgoing mail (SMTP):' field.
Check the box next to 'This server requires a secure connection (SSL)' under 'Incoming mail (POP3).' The port will change to 995.
*The order of 'Outgoing' and 'Incoming' mail server fields varies by version. Make sure you enter the correct information in each field.
Click the 'Servers' tab, and check the box next to 'My server requires authentication.'
* Did you click 'Save Changes' after enabling POP in Gmail? To ensure that Gmail can communicate with your mail client, be sure to click 'Save Changes' on the Gmail 'Mail Settings' page.
If you did the above and you still are NOT getting emails from your friend, go to the webserver and look to see if your friends email address is in the spam filter. If so, then click on the message and click NOT SPAM. This will then allow his emails to get through.
